Down the Rabbit Hole… Team Yankee and 3D Modeling

So apparently I swallowed the right pill because lately I am loving things. I’m having fun learning the game, actually even finished a game today.

So for those wondering why I’ve been so quiet… here’s a quick list:

  • Learning how to create BETTER 3D models than I’ve made in the past.
  • Printing LOTS of Soviet vehicles for my Team Yankee force.
  • Work
  • Anniversary trip to New Orleans ( pic included below )
  • Painting LOTS of Soviet vehicles for my Team Yankee force.
  • Work
  • Playing Team Yankee
  • Work
  • and so much more it’s unreal…

As anyone can attest that knows me, I can’t stay focused to save my life. That being said, this is the most focused I’ve been in a VERY long time and I’m starting to see the fruits of my labor with the freshly finished SU-25 Frogfoot squadron I modeled, printed, painted, applied decals, and sealed.

My SU-25 Frogfoot squadron – now if they will just make a friggin roll to get on the table I’ll be happy as hell.

I also have a bunch of other stuff I’ve made and it still needs some work… like the Gaz-69. Just a cute little putt putt transport that will look nice on the field with something like a squad of VDV chilling out with it.

So what am I running in Team Yankee right now you might ask? Well today I ran two full BMP-2 Motor Companies and dug them in for a long fight. For support they had the Frogfoots that never made it on the table, there were Gaskin’s, BRDM-2’s, BMP3’s, Spandrel’s, and I’m sure I’m forgetting something…. anywho, they dug in and put up a hell of a fight. I’m needing some helicopters to stay on the board and deliver air support to the infantry. The troops take one hell of a pounding and are proving to be incredibly resilient along with their BMP-2 transports.

So yeah, between work and this I’ve been pretty busy. I did take the day yesterday to hit the Doctor and then we drove over to New Orleans for our yearly pilgrimage to take our anniversary pic:

That’s me with Boomer, my wife Kristy, and our son Allen outside the French Quarter Wedding Chapel.
